    Final Audio Design Impressions and Discussion Thread

    Nice brief review! Any comparisons to the E series, 4000 or 5000? (for me comparisons to other IEMS offer the reader better ideas on their overall SQ) Thanks!!

    Trick question? How about a step up in the line??? E3000?

    So happy for your approval, not sure what "can be true at the end means", perhaps "the end of the day?":ksc75smile:

    Meant the higher end of the Heaven series, maybe starting at the Heaven V on up. Just a guess

    Final Audio Design Impressions and Discussion Thread

    Hi! :beerchug: Haven't been back to the forums for years but have been reading this thread for years!! I have the Heaven V and love it, but can't find a comparison between the Heaven V and the E5000. Apparently it has a detachable cord?? How does the SQ compare? Can someone please comment...

    Excellent review!! I have the Heaven IV and love them, from your review it sounds like the E5000 is indeed a darker sound, perhaps not to my liking. Yet the cords are different, but are the microfonics(touch noise) less with the E5000 than the Heaven?? (Even around the ear with the Heaven IV...

    Aurisonics ASG-2.5 Review by mark2410

    Absolutely spendid review!!  Spot on in my books as I've had the AS2 and AS2 converted to the AS2.5 then converted to the AS1Plus.   Sorry they didn't have enuff bass for you!!HA!!    Anyway, the newest Hybrid the AS1Plus is much more my cup of tea, but in all honesty, for that genre of sound I...

    TOUR CLOSED - CUSTOMART US CIEM Demo Lineup Tour - Including Harmony 8 Pro

    I strongly disagree with Barra's request that 5 people should be pm'd.   I think those that signed up are horribly irresponsible to not timely respond and  the burden should not be on whoever has the demo.     I received an email from headfi in my gmail from the member who was going to pass...

    TOUR CLOSED - CUSTOMART US CIEM Demo Lineup Tour - Including Harmony 8 Pro

    Very, very prelim. report using foam tips in comparison to FAD Heaven V:  bottom line:  FAD is very, very musical and unique, be grateful and hang on to it.    I have asked many others who own the FAD Heavens if they knew of a custom like the FAD and the response was the same:  they have found...

      Just found a pic of a weightlifter wearing the FAD Heaven VIII.  Look how strong he is  Yet he still can't hold his head up from their weight!!

    I currently have the Heaven V and just sold my very beloved Pandora VI only due to weight.   I have been primed to get the Heaven VII but just found out its weight, so thought I'd pass this along:   Sony 7550        7grams Sony ex1000    8grams Heaven V         17grams Heaven VII      ...

    Reviews + impressions thread: Final Audio Design Pandora Hope VI (interesting dynamic + BA full size headphones)

    Measurements are BS and so is Tyll's little opinion and for that matter Inks and his review friend.   There are other reviews out there that highly praise the PH4 along with many members who bought the headphone, sold it, and wrote later on that they regretted selling.   I suggest you listen vs...

    Reviews + impressions thread: Final Audio Design Pandora Hope VI (interesting dynamic + BA full size headphones)

    Got the Hope VI within 7 days of ordering from AmazonJP, all the way from Japan via Tenso, extremely fast.   Figure they must have been flown in than driven, but prob not flown in by the new Solar Impulse 2.   Anyway, I did a quick listen then burned in for 30plus hrs, and well, they sound like...

    Reviews + impressions thread: Final Audio Design Pandora Hope VI (interesting dynamic + BA full size headphones)

    I'm 90% ready to buy the Hope VI. Listened to some open back Alesandro MS2 earphones today with foam cups and honestly,the sound was very nice but the cups were hot. My ears don't get along with foam!!LOL! So how is the heat factor with the VI? I got hot within minutes of having the foam cups...

    Reviews + impressions thread: Final Audio Design Pandora Hope VI (interesting dynamic + BA full size headphones)

    So I guess you don't need an amp for the Hope VI like the Senns 650 needs an amp??   Also, this is a real "duh" question, but is it just a matter of preference for you to put on the Hope vs the Heaven, or is the Hope a much "bigger" "fuller" experience of similar signature?   For example, I'll...

    I am actually thinking of getting my first headphone and tube amp, the 650/crack combo and wondered if the 650 has similar SQ as the FAD Heaven??   (Seems like it might particularly midrange and slightly subdued highs, but the Senn would be more detailed??)

    A truly excellent review reflecting quite a bit of time thoroughly evaluating a very hard to describe IEM from my perspective.   I agree with your description of the SQ and their cable, oh my!!!!   Anyone looking for an accurate description of either this or the Heaven V will be well served by...

    Very nice review!!   Nicely detailed with no real sibilance, Ah, LOL!!     At first I didn't understand your concern about impedence with amps cause I don't do desktop yet....  but my Tralucent T1 is too strong to be used with my FAD Heaven, which is very low impedence(I do believe).   Yes, I...

    Sorry Mr. Fly, I just found out that you were given one of several prototypes and the final version of the AS2 was different.   Which explains the differences in pre-reviews vs the real McCoy!!  (so instead of $600 you only owe me $300LoL!!)   Just confirmed by Andy at Aurisonics, the only...
